The Addition 2.0

Published about 1 month ago • 2 min read

There's no doubt that that Kate Middleton photo is a major comms strategy screw-up that has generated a lot of attention. (I wrote about it for CapX.) But has anyone noticed that Americans seem more excited by the whole saga than us Brits?!

The next few months are going to be very interesting for "GB News". It seems happy to push the boundaries, but how far can that go, especially during an election campaign? The regulator Ofcom is now watching the upstart broadcaster, although I don't get the sense from anyone that there is a realistic chance of its broadcast licence being revoked. It is going to get contentious though.

The Addition 2.0

You may have noticed that The Addition was a bit quiet last week. That’s because some exciting things are happening. Firstly, this newsletter is going (almost entirely) paid only. The full Tuesday and Friday versions, and the archive, will be available only to paid subscribers. These are going to include longer analysis pieces as well as all the good stuff that ends up in my notebook.

Free subscribers will still get something though. When the podcast returns, (which will be soon,) I will send that out to the entire list, along with some other snippets that I hope you will enjoy. However, the in-depth analysis and news will be paywalled. Paid subscriptions are the best way to support the ongoing growth of The Addition and I really appreciate anyone who takes one out.

There are big scoops and pieces of analysis that I’m working on, so subscribers will get plenty of value. I’m also offering the first 20 people to take out a new subscription a 20% discount, so don’t delay!

There is a growing amount of content from The Addition. I’ve ramped up the blog, which remains without a paywall. It is regularly updated with the news and analysis from where tech and media meet, so keep checking back there.

Separate from the reporting, I’ve launched the Newsletter Masterclass too. If you want to launch or grow your own newsletter, check it out!

For this month's "Lessons from the creator economy" column for Media Voices I interviewed Sophia Smith Galer. It was a fascinating conversation with a very modern media operator. Read it here. "Fallout" is looking like a hit for Prime Video [Image via Amazon Prime Video] Although there are undoubtedly issues as studios have tightened their belts, streaming has also provided film and TV creators with greater opportunities to get their work out there. Yet all too often we are seeing...
